    I've acquired a Aeronet 1242 wireless access point and its the
    lightweight configuration flavor (long story) instead of the
    autonomous version. Is there a way to downgrade it back to being
    autonomous or should I sell it and just buy another one that is
    autonomous? Or is there a really cheap way of using something (tftp
    server?) as a WAP controller that isn't going to cost >$300? Just
    thought I'd ask.. Thanks!

  2. Rick,

    I think just copying the correct IOS image, and erasing the configuration
    will convert the AP to autonomous mode. Converting to LWAP is tricky because
    it requires generating RSA key, etc.

    Good luck,

    Cool.. I've actually got two of these WAP's, but the other is the
    flavor so I could possibly try using that IOS on the other one..
    Thanks for the

  5. It's completely opposite of what person wants to do - he has AP in
    Lightweight mode, and he wants to convert it back to autonomous mode.
